This pattern was written to be a great introduction to knitting shawls! It works up quickly, since it is only comprised of 400 yards of yarn. Garter ridges make up the main body of the work and then blossom out into a drop stitch design that gets increasingly lacier. This pattern is a fantastic vehicle for showing off gorgeous hand dyed yarn! And it’s warm enough for frosty mornings.
The sample yarn is a custom color made for Unraveled Sheep in Sandy, Utah. As such, it deserved a great local name. Every year, the Uintah Mountains blaze up in a fury of autumnal colors, which is perfectly mimicked in the colors of this yarn.
